Great camera but...,
This review is from: Canon Digital SLR Camera EOS 5D Mark II (Camera)
This camera does a lot of things well but I have found the auto focus struggling in low light and contrast situations when compared with the Nikon D700 which is at about the same price level. More problematic is that my camera has malfunctioned after 2 months of use showing an "error 20" message when you try and take a picture. Looking at forums online this is bugging other users also but it is difficult to gauge how widespread this problem is. I found the situation of not being sure of capturing an image at the magic moment very disconcerting and not what I would expect from a professional level machine.

Following my review here, the camera has had to go back to Canon for repair.

Surely any focus issue would be dependent on the lens used, and did canon fix the err20 problem?
